How is your Christmas shopping going? I’m almost done – just a couple more bits to get but I did a good chunk of it last week in Leeds when I went shopping in my new Hotter boots!
It was a weekday afternoon – I’d arranged to have my afternoon school run covered so I could have a bit of time to shop and I went to the Hotter Leeds store to see their great new ranges for winter! I’ve got quite a few pairs of footwear from Hotter – they are so comfy and stylish – a real class act when it comes to their brand. Their footwear is perfect for people with busy lifestyles as I don’t have time for my feet to hurt or shoes to pinch when I’m busy getting things done. At Hotter, I can find on trend gems amongst their range and their stores are so welcoming and open with space to browse – plus their in store team are delightful. Very friendly and helpful and they just want you to find the perfect pair for you!
Their team, Jenny and Siobhan were on hand last week to help me select my new boots – the Pixie. I loved this soft and slouchy suede style – I chose black as it goes with everything! However this style comes in 8 colours including a beautiful aubergine which would have been my second choice! Whilst I was in store trying on, there were so many styles that caught my eye. I adore these patent leather brogues (below), these would really jazz up my daytime wardrobe, but I was pleased with the Pixie Boot, with its tassle and boho vibe. A I was trying them on I commented how I felt like Kate Moss in them!
So boot shopping complete, I headed out into the busy Christmas crowds in my Pixie boots to pick up some bargains! Leeds has amazing shops, recent years have seen millions of pounds of investment in the city and a great mix of designer boutiques alongside cool, edgy street brands springing up. There is something for everyone in Leeds city centre, and the retailers go all out to decorate and create a festive atmosphere. I just had to share an Instagram shot of one of the big trees adorning Trinity Leeds.
I must have walked for miles around Leeds – from the Kirkgate Christmas Market to the Victoria Quarter. I went to Trinity Leeds and Victoria Gate, and my cushioned soft boots kept me warm and comfortable all day. I chose the boots for their style but I love them for their comfort. It was like shopping in my slippers! After a busy afternoon, I went back to Hotter as I was meeting a blogger friend Fran, for a coffee and she was choosing a pair of boots too! Fran is an amazing fashion blogger from The Style Creative and always makes me smile. Here she is getting the perfect Instagram shot of her new Sienna boots!
When I met Fran it was at store closing time so the Hotter manager Jenny got out some lovely nibbles and something bubbly for us to turn our browsing into an occasion! They go the extra mile like this – this is why I love the staff in store!
The team at Hotter Leeds really know how to win a blogger’s heart. After hours shopping- the store was ours alone, chocolate nibbles and a glass of something bubbly! @hottershoes Thank you for your hospitality and the lovely Pixie boots I chose. I’m reviewing them as we speak! It was a lovely evening and your team- particularly Jenny and Siobhan made it special. #myhotterstyle #hotter #hottershoes #hotterboots #littlestoriesofmylife #photooftheday #simplepleasures #shopping #christmasshopping #winterboots #fashion #fashionblogger #fashionista
